There are approx 56 Guatemalan children in Houston and McAllen (in custody) who were separated from their parents at the border. We are working on gaining their release to me so that I can fly them home ASAP to their parents. This mess needs to be cleaned-up NOW. #Basta— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) August 16, 2018

This is most detailed data we've seen so far.

?? Parents of 366 *already* deported; 6 are 0-5. pic.twitter.com/c3YAnJzk7R
A few pieces of news from my latest. The lesson of family separation debacle wasn't that govt went too far separating families, an Admin official told me. Rather it was that “we need to be smarter if we want to implement something on this scale” again. 1/ https://t.co/RyxS8hnu6P— Jonathan Blitzer (@JonathanBlitzer) August 22, 2018
